    Speed limit on HW9

    So speed limit on front side of HW9, from Saratoga to Skyline is 30-35mph. What do you guys and gals think too low, about right, too high?

    are you talking about posted limit or the actual average that people do there?

    Actual posted speed limit of 30mph for most of the low portion, and I think it goes up to 35 near the top?

    as far as i remember it's 30 all the way to the parking lot.

    but as far as the speed limit goes, i think it really matters who you ask: when i ride my bike - too fast, when i drive my truck - just right, in my sports car - too slow. i know the sport bike people up there, definitely, think it's too slow

    may i ask why are you asking?

    Curious. I can break it going down hill on my bicycle. So I was curious to see what others thought of it.

    oh, i forgot about the downhill part! i guess i only think about the speed limit on the way up. but yeah, a little too slow actually, you can do 40+ there on the straights pretty easily. it should be 25 on the way up and 35/40 on the way down

    Damn only one vote. Do people just not ride that road, or don't want to vote?
